Getting Work In a Modern World

by the Staff of ACS Distance Learning

Getting Work In a Modern World eBook course online. A realistic guide to getting a job or starting out in business.This is a must read; for students, parents, the unemployed, careers advisors or anyone interested in changing or forging a sustainable career.

This is a must read; for students, parents, the unemployed, careers advisors or anyone interested in changing or forging a sustainable career.
 
In the past, careers were simple. If you went to school and did the right training, you could be pretty certain of finding secure work, and earning a decent living.
 
Careers are no longer simple!
 
The world is in transition, and the changes occurring today are no less significant than those of the industrial revolution or reformation.
There are two ways to react to change; either to become unsettled, or to see the opportunities it offers.
 

This book is all about recognising the changes in todays world and discovering a career path, remaining flexible in your approach to work and building an advantage over your competition in the workplace.
 
We are living in exciting times; and opportunities do abound for employment; but success depends upon a wholistic approach. Learning is still important, but qualifications might not necessarily be as important as you think. Learning must be coupled with other things like communication and technical skills, attitude, networking and experience.

 
Studying remains an important piece of the puzzle if you seek a successful career; but without the other pieces of the puzzle, it may simply leave you stranded in unemployment queues.
